Actress Dakota Johnson has just landed one of this year’s biggest lead roles as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. But before it was revealed she landed the role, we really had no idea who she was.
It turns out, she is the daughter of actress Melanie Griffith. Her mom was thrilled to hear about her daughter’s role: “Look out world! Here she comes!!! #proudmama”, she wrote on Twitter. Dakota made her acting debut at the age of 10, but she has only gotten small acting parts until now.
Her biggest roles yet so far has been in The Social Network where she slept with Justin Timberlake on screen. She has also had the lead role in short-lived sitcom Ben and Kate, where she played a single mom to a 5-year-old daughter.
